Um, hold up! It looks like Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor is ready to dish about season 8 — and all the newbies who are coming to SUR to join our favorite restaurant staff. In fact, he even name-dropped a few upcoming faces when he spoke with Life & Style exclusively while hosting the Carl’s Jr. Avocado Brunch for their new Guacamole Double Cheeseburger.

“I’ve only hung out with a couple of them. Brent is one of the guys that I really like on the show that kind of joined our cast,” the 40-year-old revealed. “He just moved here from New Jersey. He was in need of a job.”

But that’s not all we can expect from the new guy. “He’s a YouTuber, but needed part-time money so he wanted to bartend, so I’m kind of teaching him a little about that,” Jax continued. Yeah, Jax as an instructor seems a little strange, you know, in retrospect, but he’s fully aware of that fact.

“Believe it or not, I’m teaching him, which is kind of weird because I’m a terrible bartender,” he explained. “But been there 10 years and I finally get to teach people!” Even with something as small as training new staff, it just goes to show how much the former model has matured over the years.

Plus, Jax dished on a new female castmate — one that Lala Kent accidentally posted about and gave away back in July. “And then there’s a girl, Dayna, and the girls seem to be liking her a lot too,” he said. That’s for sure. In Lala’s Instagram post, the new babe was seen hanging out with the 29-year-old and their costar, Ariana Madix, poolside. She has since deleted the post.

“There’s a couple other people, but I have never talked to any of them,” he added. “They’re kind of a little bit younger than me, so I don’t really have much in common with them. They seem like great people, but I don’t know them.”

Aside from the newbies in his midst, the main thing Jax had on his mind was a burger … and TBH, we don’t blame him. “I’m a huge, huge Carl’s Jr. fan, and I’m a big, big burger fan, and Brittany [Cartwright] is a big avocado fan, so we come here,” he revealed. “She comes here for the avocado toast, I come here for the burger, and now they have the avocado burger, so it’s a win-win for both of us.” You can say that again.
